Art of the Day: Fletcher, May 2020

One thing that I’m offering out of the gallery is commissioned portraits of pets and livestock. I really do not enjoy shooting people, but animals are another matter – I just love it. This is a shot of Fletcher. And he’s the king of all he sees. And this pic is archetypal Fletch. Really a great capture of who he is (or thinks he is – and, for a cat, there’s no difference).

Fletcher, May 2020

I mentioned yesterday that I think I shoot wildlife portraiture. I’m hoping that’s what I’m getting with pets, too. And while I cannot guarantee results (too many factors, to make that claim – but I will claim that if it doesn’t work, there’s no charge), I’m pretty confident that I can get lots out of your cat, dog, cow, goat, etc. A result that will make you say, “wow…that’s the essence of him!” Animals seem to take to me quickly and react well to me. And that makes for some really great shots. I’ll be posting more pet shots in the future.

Oh, and it didn’t occur to me until just this minute, but if you’d like this pic of Fletcher for your wall, shoot me an email. He’s a handsome one for sure!
